New York City’s Crime Has Skyrocketed Since No Bail Rules Started

Unsurprisingly, crime has skyrocketed in New York after the liberal establishment implemented the Empire State’s new no bail system.

Unsurprisingly, crime has skyrocketed in New York after the liberal establishment implemented the Empire State’s new no bail system for criminals going through the criminal justice system.

If the left thought it was bringing compassion to the criminal justice system after implementation of the no bail policy, one has to wonder where the compassion is for the growing number of victims of crime.

Now that the Democrats are letting nearly all crooks off Scot free — regardless of their crime — after going before a judge, criminals understand that they have been given a free pass to commit any crime they want.

Recently, Daniel Horowitz noted how crime has spiked since the new policy went into effect:

According to NYPD crime data, in addition to the 59.6 percent spike in shootings over this time last year, robberies increased 32.8 percent and grand larceny auto crimes were up a whopping 62.8 percent. Burglaries rose by 17 percent. This is just for the first 26 days of 2020.

At least NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea understands WHY the crime rate is rising.

“If you let out individuals that commit a lot of crime, that’s precision policing in reverse and we’re seeing the effects in a very quick time,” Shea said at a press conference last Friday. He decried the undeniable “correlation” between the rise in crime and the jail and prison “populations dropping significantly.”

Shea related an anecdote that perfectly encapsulated the left’s failed ideas about criminal justice “reform.”

Last week, a drunk driver slammed his minivan into a police officer who had pulled over another driver at the side of a road, catching the officer between his car and the officer’s car. “I stopped at the hospital the next day, right before he was wheeled into surgery,” related Shea in front of reporters last Friday. “He got out of the hospital today. Individual that did it was out [of jail] before him. I mean, something’s wrong with that picture. And not his first DWI arrest.”

Democrats think they are coming to the aide of “non violent offenders” who are stuck in the justice system and being mistreated. But Horowitz notes that there really aren’t that many non-violent crooks in jail.

Democrats are letting dangerous criminals escape punishment AND giving them incentives to be MORE violent and dangerous!

Trump Creates Division to Strip Citizenship from Criminals Who Were Naturalized

The Department of Justice has created a new division that will strip citizenship from naturalized citizens who are convicted of crimes.

Published

on

The Department of Justice has created a new division that will strip citizenship from naturalized citizens who are convicted of crimes or who lied on their naturalization forms.

The new section will target “terrorists, war criminals, sex offenders, and other fraudsters” who the administration finds have cheated, lied, or hid criminal histories to get approved as citizens.

“When a terrorist or sex offender becomes a U.S. citizen under false pretenses, it is an affront to our system—and it is especially offensive to those who fall victim to these criminals,” Assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt said in a statement, according to the Epoch Times.

“The Denaturalization Section will further the Department’s efforts to pursue those who unlawfully obtained citizenship status and ensure that they are held accountable for their fraudulent conduct,” the statement adds.

The DOJ says the move was motivated by an anticipated increase in referrals for such cases from law enforcement agencies. The move will join two existing sections within the DOJ’s Civil Division’s Office of Immigration Litigation. The office already handles denaturalization cases and touts a 95 percent conviction rate.

Denaturalization cases require the government to prove that an immigrant’s naturalization certificate was “illegally procured” or “procured by concealment of a material fact or by willful misrepresentation.”

One terrorist who lost his naturalized citizenship recently is Khaled Elsayed Mohammad Abo al Dahab who was convicted of terrorism in Egypt and admitted that he was recruiting in the U.S. for al Qaida. The office has also taken citizenship away from a terrorist from Yugoslavia.

The office also pulled citizenship from convicted sex offender Moises Javier Lopez, and financial fraudster Guillermo Mondino.

AP added:

The section will focus on misrepresentations and omissions made on the N-400 naturalization form. The questions on the form ask whether the applicant has been involved in genocide or torture or if he or she had been a member of a communist party or other totalitarian organizations. The form also asked if the applicants have ever been charged with and convicted of crimes or served prison time.

This is another great idea from the Trump administration, proving that Trump is putting America and its best interests first.

Obama Era DHS Whistleblower Found Dead with Gunshot Wound to Chest

An Obama-era whistleblower was found dead Friday morning lying on the ground outside his car with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Published

on

An Obama-era whistleblower was found dead Friday morning lying on the ground outside his car with a gunshot wound to his chest.

Philip Haney, one of the founding members of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), was found lying dead beside his car near Drytown, California, the police said.

Haney’s friends reportedly said they had recently spoken to the victim and said he “never been happier,” Law Enforcement Today claimed.

The County Sheriff’s Department said that an investigation into the incident had been started.

Haney recently lost his wife to cancer, but he had met a new woman and was engaged to be married later this year.

The victim came to national prominence in 2015 when he accused the Obama administration of being reckless and soft on terrorism.

Haney also claimed that the government could have prevented the December 2, 2015, terror attack in San Bernardino if Obama had not shut down the surveillance program he had developed three years earlier.

According to American Greatness:

Haney had worked in the Intelligence Review Unit (IRU), where his job was to investigate individuals with potential links to terrorism. He was looking into global terror networks that were infiltrating radical Islamists into the United States and was making progress to that end, when he said the State Department came in and pulled the plug.

Haney said internal memos showed that his investigation was shut down because he was allegedly engaging in “profiling” of radical Islamist groups.

“The Obama Administration is more concerned with the rights of noncitizens in known Islamist groups, than with the safety and security of the American people,” Haney said in 2015.

Haney went on to claim that the Obama administration made him scrub records of Muslims with ties to terrorism.

“This was not a failure to collect intelligence, it was a failure to integrate and understand the intelligence that we already had,” Haney wrote.

“It is very plausible that one or more of the subsequent terror attacks on the homeland could have been prevented if more subject matter experts in the Department of Homeland Security had been allowed to do our jobs back in late 2009,” Haney wrote at The Hill in February 2016. “It is demoralizing — and infuriating — that today, those elusive dots are even harder to find, and harder to connect, than they were during the winter of 2009.”

After an investigation, Amador County Sheriff Martin A. Ryan claimed that the wound to Haney’s chest was “self-inflicted.”

UPDATE Monday, Feb. 24

The Amador County Sheriff’s office is now saying that it is premature to term Haney’s death a suicide.

“Unfortunately, there was misinformation immediately being put out that we have determined Mr. Haney’s death to be a suicide. This is not the case. We are currently in the beginning phase of our investigation and any final determination as to the cause and manner of Mr. Haney’s death would be extremely premature and inappropriate. No determination will be made until all evidence is examined and analyzed,” the sheriff’s office said.

Liberal Couple Runs Bike-Riding Teen Trump Supporters Off the Road

A liberal couple driving their car have been arrested for driving two teens off the road because the kids had Trump stickers on their bicycles.

Published

on

A liberal couple driving their car in Indiana have been arrested for driving two teens off the road because the kids had Trump flags on their bicycles.

The police in Hobart, Indiana, arrested Kyren Gregory Perry-Jones, 23, and Cailyn Marie Smith, 18, after reviewing Snapchat video that showed the July 22 incident, according to NWI.com.

According to the police investigation, Smith can be heard taunting the teens and saying, “Y’all scared, just like your president … America is not great, (expletive).”

Smith is also heard asking the teens if they are Trump supporters, and they admit that they are.

“Perry-Jones and Smith have each been charged with two counts of intimidation and criminal recklessness, all felonies. They were also charged with one count each of theft and criminal mischief, which are misdemeanors, court records show,” the site says.

The Hobart police charged the pair of reckless driving and making threats.

Smith is heard making threats and seen aiming his car at the bicycling teens.

Snapchat video obtained by police shows the Malibu, driven by Perry-Jones, swerve the wheels sharply “as if he saw the boys and wanted to hit them with the vehicle” while yelling, “‘Y’all better get home,'” court records state.

Perry-Jones and Smith allegedly yelled expletives at the two teen boys and demanded that they “pull that flag down” in the video, police said.

Perry-Jones is also accused of threatening the kids for calling 911 on them. Perry-Jones added that he would just tell the police that the kids used a racial slur against him, and the kids would be charged with a hate crime.

Smith also took away a Trump flag flying from their bikes.

Police said that the delay between the July incident and the final filing of charges this year was because they were attempting to get a warrant to take possession o the Snapchat video.

But once again we see that it is liberals that are the violent ones in America today.

Chicago Wins Award as Most Corrupt City in America

The City of Chicago has once again won the dubious honor of being the most corrupt city in America.

Published

on

The City of Chicago has once again won the dubious honor of being the most corrupt city in America. Meanwhile, Illinois has been deemed the third most corrupt state.

The assessment comes from an annual report by the University of Illinois at Chicago and co-authored by UIC professor Dick Simpson a former Chicago alderman. the study is based on public corruption statistics published by the U.S. Department of Justice, according to Block Club Chicago.

The report notes that 13 public officials in the Chicago district have been convicted on charges of corruption. It isn’t just the city, either. 300 suburban politicians have gone to jail over 40 years, Simpson said.

The rest of Illinois had five more officials convicted on corruption charges last year.

Chicago has been in complete control by Democrats for nearly 100 years and Illinois for 30.

The city and state have seen some of the most convictions of public officials between 1976 and 2018.

“During that time period, Chicago had a total of 1,750 public corruption convictions. For comparison, Los Angeles has seen 1,547 cases, while the New York City borough of Manhattan saw 1,360,” the website reported.

“Our study shows that Chicago remains the most corrupt city in the United States with 1,750 total public corruption convictions from 1976 through 2018. This number is even more troubling when compared to the second-place city, Los Angeles, which has had 200 fewer convictions in that time period,” the study’s author said.

According to the DOJ data, on a per capita basis, Illinois ranked as the third-most corrupt state.

Illinois remains the third-most corrupt state, based on the formula that compares the number of each area’s corruption convictions with its population, according to the report issued by Simpson and his students.

While federal convictions for public corruption tapered “slightly” in 2018, since then there has been an increase in news reports about investigations launched during that yea

Illinois was beat out for the number one slot only by the District of Columbia and the state of Louisiana.

“The District of Columbia was No. 1, while Louisiana was No. 2. The states of New York, California, Texas and Florida each had more total corruption convictions than Illinois, but their populations are larger, placing them lower in the ranking,” the site said.

Liberal Slams Those Saying Sanders Fans are Violent, Steve Scalise Reminds He was Shot By a Sanders Man

Rep. Steve Scalise, who was shot and nearly killed by a Bernie Sanders operative, dropped a bomb on leftist Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison.

Published

Rep. Steve Scalise, who was shot and nearly killed by a Bernie Sanders operative, dropped a bomb on leftist Democrat Rep. Keith Ellison who asked for anyone to show him an example of a Sanders fan being violent.

The first round in a losing fight was posted by extremist, Muslim former Representative Kieth Ellison of Minnesota.

Ellison, who is now Minnesota’s Attorney General, got on his high horse and asked: “I have never seen @BernieSanders supporters being unusually mean or rude. Can someone send me an example of a “Bernie Bro” being bad. Also, are we holding all candidates responsible for the behavior of some of their supporters? Waiting to hear.”

But Rep. Steve Scalise, a member of Republican House leadership and a congressman from Louisiana, had a mic-drop reply that was short and sweet… and utterly devastating.

“I can think of an example,” he simply replied.

You may recall that Scalise was playing baseball with the House GOP baseball team at a Virginia ball park in 2017 when a former Bernie Sanders operative named James Hodgkinson started shooting at the Republicans to try and kill as many as possible.

Yeah. Boom.

Raheem Kassam also pointed out that a recent Project Veritas investigation found a Bernie Bro threatening violence:

Then there was a recent story at Fox News headlined, “Ex-Sanders consultant arrested after allegedly planting weapons in jail for ‘evil’ escape plot.”

So, yeah no Bernie Bro ever seemed to pose a threat in any way, huh?

Criminal Released 140 Times Thanks New York Democrats for Dangerous ‘Bail Reform’ Law

A criminal who has been given a free pass 139 previous times is smugly thanking the State of New York for its dangerous “bail reform” law.

Published

on

A criminal who has been given a free pass 139 previous times is smugly thanking the State of New York for its dangerous “bail reform” law that continues to let him walk after arrests.

The convict, 56-year-old Charles Barry, laughed at New York’s criminal justice system after being released for his 140th time only days after the NYPD arrested him yet again.

Barry was arrested this month after being accused of scamming a foreign tourist on the subway out of his cash, but thanks to New York’s new no-bail system, he was allowed to walk free despite 139 previous arrests and convictions, the New York Daily News reported.

The crook was charged with fraudulent accosting, but since that is a “non-violent” offense, he was allowed to simply walk out of jail with the promise that he would appear in court at the appointed time.

Barry’s name has been mentioned by media outlets reporting on the progress of the new no-bail law. And that media attention has even emboldened the crook.

“I’m famous! I take $200, $300 a day of your money, cracker! You can’t stop me!” Barry told the Daily News. “Bail reform, it’s lit! It’s the Democrats! The Democrats know me and the Republicans fear me. You can’t touch me! I can’t be stopped!”

“It’s a great thing. It’s a beautiful thing,” Barry said of the Democrats. “They punk’d people out for bullshit crimes.”

The no-bail system is only months old, but Barry has already been arrested seven times since it was signed into law.

And, just like critics predicted, Barry thinks the law gives him a license to offend.

“Barry’s criminal record includes six felony convictions, 87 misdemeanor convictions, and 21 skipped court hearings. Barry’s record also includes spending six criminal sentences in state prison, including stints for drug dealing and grand larceny,” Breitbart News reported.

One has to wonder how soon police officers will just stop even arresting criminals?

Boy Scouts of America Files for Bankruptcy After Years of Sex Abuse Lawsuits

The Boy Scouts of America has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after being hit with 30 years of sex abuse allegations.

Published

on

The Boy Scouts of America has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection after being hit with 30 years of sex abuse allegations by scouts abused by gay scout masters.

The bankruptcy petition was filed in Delaware as the 110-year-old organization has faced multimillion-dollar legal fees over the allegations.

Per Fox News:

Sexual abuse settlements had reportedly strained the Boy Scouts’ finances, with states passing laws last year so victims from long-ago abuse can sue for damages.

Mike Pfau, an attorney whose firm was representing 300 victims in New York as of last April, said the bankruptcy would be “bigger in scale than any other sex abuse bankruptcy.”

“You’re talking about thousands of perpetrators,” Seattle-based lawyer Michael Pfau, who has represented more than 300 Boy Scout victims in 34 states, told the New York Daily News. “You’re talking about tens of thousands of victims. This will be the largest bankruptcy the country has ever seen, and likely one of the largest corporate bankruptcies.”

BSA has been struggling to settle the myriad of lawsuits.

“The BSA cares deeply about all victims of abuse and sincerely apologizes to anyone who was harmed during their time in Scouting. We are outraged that there have been times when individuals took advantage of our programs to harm innocent children,” said Roger Mosby, president and chief executive officer of the BSA.

“While we know nothing can undo the tragic abuse that victims suffered, we believe the Chapter 11 process – with the proposed Trust structure – will provide equitable compensation to all victims while maintaining the BSA’s important mission,” he concluded.

“The bankruptcy petition reportedly listed the Boy Scouts’ assets as between $1 billion and $10 billion, and its liabilities at $500 million to $1 billion,” Fox reported.

The Scouts resisted changing its policies and allowing gays to serve as scout masters. It looks like the lawsuits prove that allowing gays into the scouts is a very bad idea.

Looks like liberals have wrecked another fine American institution.
